As Christians we are to recognize that everything we have belongs to God, and the children that are born to our homes belong to Him as well. Being dedicated is not the salvation of the child, but is the public expression of the fact that he or she belongs to Him. Parents should seek to do everything in their power, as God gives them wisdom, to see that the child grows up to respect and honor God, and to love and serve Jesus Christ. The dedication service is more than a ritual; it is a commitment of parents to honor the will and the Word of God.
NCC offers a Parent-Child Dedication class at least twice a year. If you regularly attend NCC and are interested in dedicating your child, you may get an application from the church office to register. You can also print it off by clicking on the link below.
